Stop Supporting Farms that Cage Hens
This petition made change with 29,636 supporters!
**UPDATE: Thanks to compassionate consumers like yourself, General Mills has released a global commitment to end its support of caging egg-laying hens! Please consider supporting our other campaign against Walmart, asking the retail giant to stop sourcing eggs from cruel battery cage farms.**
The majority of consumers agree: caging egg-laying hens for their entire lives is just plain wrong. That’s why companies like Grupo Bimbo, Unilever, Barilla, Sodexo, ALDI, and many others have all made a global commitment to end their support of cruel cage farms. But General Mills refuses to end its support of farms that confine hens in tiny, filthy cages.
These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates.
Not only food manufacturers, but top grocery chains and hospitality companies are phasing out cages from their global supply chains. Even some of the top egg producers in the world have stated they are moving away from cages and that cage-free is the future. General Mills, itself, has pledged to eliminate this cruel practice in the US and Canada but refuses to do so within its global supply chain.
Please sign this petition to tell General Mills that you won’t be purchasing any of their products as long as they support these cages.
